How to Multiply Fractions with Whole Numbers


It's simple to multiply fractions with whole numbers. You first have to make the whole numbers into fractions by adding a 1 as the denominator.
So for example if have the problem 3/4 x 3 the first thing you have to do is put a 1 under 3 and so now the problem will be 3/4 x 3/1.
Now all you have to do is multiply and the answer will be 9/4 and since this is a improper fraction we will have to make it mixed number which you will have to do most likely, so our answer will be 2 1/4.
Now try some of these and make sure to watch the video on YouTube.
